Details

If I create a new profile on Mac, the profile folder is created in the wrong
place. Instead of being in <system disk>:Documents:Mozilla, it was created
inside a folder with no name in the same directory as apprunner. This is bad.

Also, when creating a new profile, the folder ends up with aliases of the files
in the profile/default directory, which is wrong. The files should be copied,
and not aliased (since files like bookmarks.html get modified at runtime, and
we should never be modifying files that are in the tree (via alias)).

Gayatri, Looks like the recursive copy routine on the mac isn't doing the right
thing.  Can you look into this one?  Thanks,  Steve
